About Me

I am a Hopeful Bride of Christ and I long for the day I can dedicate all of my life to Him. I have been actively discerning religious life for about 4 years now and I have been accepted to enter the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church. I hope to begin formation soon and beg your prayers that my student loans do not keep me from entering. With your help and prayers I hope that my entrance to the SMMC will soon be reality. Rest assured that you are all in my thoughts and prayers - most especially those young men and women discerning their vocations, whether to the religious life, priesthood or married life. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I continue this journey toward Him.

Fundraising dinner

OK this will be a short post.

Last night I held a dinner for the purpose of raising funds towards my student loans.  The turnout was much better than I expected, about 60 people attended and my nerves weren't that bad (I stopped shaking  45 minutes into the night)

The focus of the night was vocations in the Church and the panelists that we had were incredible at catching the audience's attention.  Everyone in attendance (even the wee ones) thought that the panelists were "cool" and did a great job of tying together the similarities between the different vocations and how important they are to the church.

I don't know how much was raised but I do know that there is more of an awareness about the Laboure Society and the need to support young men and women with financial obstacles to their entrance to religious life or the priesthood.  I hope to do another dinner or two to help raise more funds.

Thank you all for the prayers and the support.  I ask for your continued prayers as the MEFV review board meets soon.

In Christ our Hope,
Hopeful
